A chemistry teacher CV should reflect that you have the right qualifications for the job. As competition for chemistry teaching jobs is increasing, it is necessary to demonstrate various other skills and values to the employer in the chemistry CV.
Show the employer that you are interested in young people through your previous work experience or volunteer experience. It would be an added advantage to have counseling skills or experience working as a social worker or youth coach. This is because teaching chemistry involves more than simply giving information to young people. The young people you will encounter may have other problems that you may have to address as an educator and mentor.
